Symbol Builder - No necassary tags for generic vertical child

Hi dear all:smileyhappy:,

 

I have the issue, not really important but a bit annoying.

 

When i create a generic vertical child component, there is no necessary/optionnal attribute available.

But for generic horizontal child there are here and for other family vertical child/parent too.

 

So now, i used to create a horizontal child, insert my needed attributes, then change the type from horizontal to vertical.

 

Is this behavior of AutoCAD normal ?

Is there a file i can edit the needed/optionnal attribute i can insert with the symbol builder ?

 

Thanks for any idea you would suggest !

Hi Adrien,

 

To answer your questions:

 

1. No, this is not normal behaviour :smileywink:

2. What attributes that are available in the Symbol Builder is controlled by some DWG-files in your symbol library. These files are named AT_VC*.DWG (For Vertical Child), and I belive you understand what the rest of the filename is for :smileyhappy:

 

Have a look in your symbol librar(y/ies)!

I got it !

 

1. That was what i guessed :smileyvery-happy:!

 

2. In my symbol library there was a dwg file "At_vc_gnr.dwg". I renammed it "AT_VC_GNR.dwg" . Now ACE agree using this dwg block

 

That was easier than i first thought...

Thanks for helping me !
